so i just got up to 6000KM on the new motor. and just finaly got it tuned right and this happened. somewhere under the dash she went up. were pritty sure it was the harness that goes to the dash. I was driving along when the smoke started. was kinda surprized. figured it was the heater core, becouse smoke came from the vents. but i relized pretty fast it wasn't. anyway, see what the insurance company has to say and go from there.

heres a bunch of pics.





















so what do you all think???

Holy shit! Thats the worst total burn out I have ever seen!

Although I can't help but thinking it was something you did to it that made it burst in to flames like that... even a fuse that was bigger then what was factory I suppose could start this. :dunno:

well i kinda figured it was bad wiring, but it was the wiring harness that ran from the computer to the instrument cluster. and they were the only wires that i didn't look at when i put the new motor in. and iam hoping i get at least half of what i had into her. money wise.

Just out of pure curiosity, did you take the engine half apart after the fire ?
